don't i know it!
now that this is pretty much all i could want in a road bike, i've been thinking a lot about a commuter/around-town bike. i don't like to lock it up (and have been going grocery shopping less as a result).
i've been thinking about a single-speed just for it's simplicity (maybe even - gasp - a fixed, tho definitely with a brake). i have a spare 1 1/8" fork, but all the frames i've seen with horizontal drop-outs have 1" head tubes.
i'd be really interested to hear other ideas to this prob; i'll search the forum to see if others are talking about their commuter bikes.
my needs in a commuter bike: lightweight!
i live in a 3rd story walk-up, so i don't want to be lugging a 30 lb cruiser up and down the stairs.
